Nine original elements yet to be performed in major international competition in Women's Gymnastics stand to be named after gymnasts at the 2017 Artistic Gymnastics World Championships.

If a gymnast who has submitted a skill to be named for her completes the new element without a major deduction during the competition in Montreal, the element willl bear the name of that gymnast in the women's Code of Points.

The new skills were submitted by federations and evaluated prior to the start of the World Championships by the FIG Women's Technical Committee.

In order to have an element named in the women's Code of Points, a female gymnast must successfully perform a submitted skill at least once in World or Olympic competition.

Here are the new elements under consideration:
